Best Ways to Freeze tomatoes


Wash, Dry, Freeze

Tomatoes can be frozen for up to 6 months. Wash and dry the tomatoes you want to freeze. Freeze the extra tomatoes in a Ziplock bag. If you’ll need to open the bag, again and again, don’t freeze all of them together because when you’ll open the bag, again and again, the air will get in and form ice. Use several small Ziplock bags and suck out the air before closing the bag.

Frozen tomatoes in a Ziplock bag can be crushed easily with a rolling pin. So, crushing them for recipes will be easy!

Freeze Cooked Tomatoes

Tomatoes can be frozen when they are raw, whole, cut, or cooked easily. If you accidentally made more tomato sauce than you needed, then pour it into a jar and put it in the freezer. It’s that simple. The sauce should taste good for 3-4 months.

Vegetable Bag

Oftentimes, we only need half a vegetable for a recipe, so what about the other half? The other half can be stored in the freezer. I have a leftover vegetable bag in my freezer. Whenever I have leftover vegetables, instead of throwing them away I put them in the vegetable bag so the other half can be used later. When the vegetable bag is full, I use it to make vegetable soup or egg fried rice.

Crush or Blend Tomatoes and Freeze

Tomatoes don’t last long on the shelf so freezing them is the ultimate solution. For days when you’ll be busy and won’t have a lot of time to crush or blend them, chop, blend and freeze the tomato puree.

I usually need tomatoes to make pasta sauce, pizza sauce, or tomato soup. So, I blend the tomatoes and freeze them in plastic cups to use later. Slice them into smaller pieces and add them to the blender. Blend until it turns into a smooth paste. Pour it into the extra mugs that you don’t use a lot and cover with plastic wrap and freeze. By defrosting a single cup, you’ll be able to make pasta sauce later. Choose the right size cup or fill it according to your need.
